Lucy also had short study experiences at University of the West of England, Bristol and Camberwell College of Art, London. Her work is in The Keeper’s Collection at the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong.
In October 2022, Lucy became a volunteer in the Meanwhile Garden. The Meanwhile Garden is a recovery garden to help people from the trauma of the lockdown located in central London.
